Test Reveals Canine Fur on Diddy's "Sean John" Jacket Sold at Macy's

The test results are in on Diddy’s fur jacket: raccoon dog.

The HSUS tested the fur on a Sean John Hooded Snorkel Jacket sold on Macys.com that was originally advertised, incorrectly, as having an "imitation rabbit fur collar" and materials identified as "faux fur."

The jacket, part of a clothing line by celebrity rapper and music producer Sean "Diddy" Combs, was not only incorrectly advertised by Macy's but also labeled as containing "raccoon" fur, which has now been found to come from a canine species known as raccoon dog.

Macy's has reportedly pulled the mislabeled Sean John garments from its department stores and online shop, but The HSUS is calling on Diddy and other designers and retailers to stop using and selling fur trim altogether.

Previous tests conducted by The HSUS on fur-trimmed jackets from a range of other retailers and designers revealed the same problem—raccoon dog fur from China mislabeled as being from a different species, either "raccoon" or "coyote."

The mislabeling of a fur product is a violation of federal law.

China has no animal welfare laws. Animals killed for their fur in China—dogs, raccoon dogs and others—often face horrible abuse, and are too often skinned alive.

Update!

Sean "Diddy" Combs notified The HSUS through a representative Dec. 22 that the Sean John snorkel jacket containing raccoon dog fur (see video of raccoon dogs killed for fur) was being pulled from sales, and in the future, the garment will be made with faux fur trim only.

"I was completely unaware of the nature of this material, but as soon as we were alerted, the garments were pulled off the Macy's floor and website," Combs said. "I have instructed our outerwear licensee to cease the production of any garments using this material immediately. I appreciate the tireless work that the Humane Society does and would like to thank them for bringing attention to this issue."

The HSUS and the Sean John company are discussing the company's broader policy on fur trim.

Unbelievable. Seems just about everyone in China knew about the real fur thing but P. Diddy. And all Sean Jean needed to do was to test it. Do you think he also does not know about workers getting less than $100 per month? Seems like this qualifies as willful disregard.

Yes, WILLFUL DISREGARD.
Forget about throwing red paint...just make everyone who wears fur watch this horrifying video. My God.

At first I thought, Racoon Dogs? What? Which is it?

HEY! These are DOGS, people!! Two of my own happened to be sitting with chins resting on my knee as I saw this awful video. Truly, these people have NO SOUL to be able to do this to ANY animal.

The thing is, the suffering is not just limited to raccoon dogs.

The US is the leading trapping country in the world for fur.

Imagine spending an entire day with your hand caught in a car door, and you get the idea.

And these same traps catch dog and cats--they snap shut on whatever triggers them.

Mink are confined into tiny wire cages, where they just spin in place hour after hour.

and on, and on, and on....

for what? vanity.
